Professional teeth cleaning includes a more thorough dental cleaning using specialized dental instruments to remove plaque and tartar in hard-to-reach areas.
Teeth cleaning is a great preventive service and can detect and treat poor dental health before it becomes serious, saving you time and money in the long run. A regular cleaning can help prevent:
- tartar build-up
- bad breath
We recommend a dental cleaning twice a year to significantly reduce your risk of more harmful and serious concerns, like gum disease and tooth decay.
Regular dental cleanings are just as important as brushing, flossing and rinsing. During a dental cleaning, plaque, tartar and stain build-up is removed from your teeth by our hygienist using specialized tools while we check for and treat other problems from basic cavities to more advanced issues, like gum disease.
What Happens During A Professional Teeth Cleaning?
At Anderson Family Dental Care, our teeth cleanings include:
- A routine dental exam to ensure healthy teeth and gums, and early detection of cavities, tartar build up, and sensitive teeth.
- A comprehensive cleaning and scaling procedure to remove plaque and tartar where build-up has occurred since your last visit.
- A flossing, rinse, and secondary exam help to ensure your teeth have been restored to their best.
- Many elect a fluoride treatment to be completed in order to help protect your newly cleaned teeth and aid in preventing cavities until your next visit.
We’re happy to schedule your next visit as before you leave so you can be confident you miss the next appointment.
Do You Really Need A Teeth Cleaning?
During a dental cleaning, plaque, tartar and stain build-up is removed from your teeth by our hygienist using specialized tools while we check for and treat other problems from basic cavities to more advanced issues, like gum disease.
This method of cleaning is more extensive and helps to keep hard to reach areas clean which even daily brushing and flossing can’t always get to.
Just because you don’t have tooth pain, sensitivity or struggle with cavities doesn’t mean you should have a regular teeth cleaning every six months.
Teeth cleaning is all about early detection and prevention.
